With a Frontispiece from a painting by Carl Rungius & illustrations from photographs by Suydam Cutting, and Kermit. 278 pages with index, illustrations, and a fold-out map bound in at the end of the text. President Roosevelt's two sons were here on their second, and highly successful hunting expedition of 1928), culminating in the first capture & killing of the giant panda by a westerner. Rare in any kind of jacket. Non-author's 5-line presentation inscription front flyleaf dated 1929, else very good indeed in a good-only jacket with several tape repairs. A couple pieces are missing from the spine but the adventurers are clearly shown on the front panel; the price inside the jacket is unclipped. There's a narrow red stain across the top page edges, but the book itself is quite nice, the gilt illustration and lettering are both quite bright.
